Show Description

The paddler’s favourite for decades has resurfaced. A cut-out handle keeps the River Shorty light, low-profile and secure in your hand. Serrated edges saw efficiently through lines or decks. The blunt tip keeps extractions from getting all stabby and doubles for light prying.

  • Stainless steel is highly polished to resist corrosion.
  • Rigid plastic sheath has a back clip for fitting on PFD lash tabs, belts, boots, etc.
  • Available in new hi-vis green or classic black.
